Bineroo 1.10: New tutorial
Published on April 5, 2023
A good onboarding is essential for a pleasant game experience, especially when there are few rules to learn. And a well crafted tutorial should help with that.
In previous versions, the tutorial was a 4-step presentation. The first 3 steps explained the rules through correct and incorrect examples. And the final step was a try on a straightforward 4x4 grid.
Why a change first?
I wanted to make this tutorial more interactive because I believe we learn best by trying ourselves than through given examples.
The tutorial is still a 4-step presentation but now the first 3 steps are playable. For each of the latter, the player is asked to fill in a simple grid by respecting a given rule.
Will this new tutorial be more, less or equally effective as the previous one? Actually I have no clear idea (I've been playing this game for so long that I know the rules by heart and I don't read them anymore 😆). The best way to see how players receive this update is by collecting usage data. We'll see if players go through the tutorial process or leave before.
As with any release, I would really appreciate some feedback. Any ideas for improvements are also very welcome. Email me at email@example.com
